While we are proud of our reputation of bringing top quality artistes to Beer and Bluegrass each year, many of these are first time visitors to the UK. One of our favourite sections is our closing night ‘Jams’ where many of the acts join together on stage and join together ‘Bluegrass Style’ singing around a single microphone to close each evening. The results are breath-taking and totally unique, adding a very special atmosphere to the Festival. Our music ranges from traditional Bluegrass to Americana and beyond.


We always spend a good deal of time selecting the very best of Beers and Ciders from top craft brewers, locally and further afield. Never ones to rest on our laurels we are always researching and exploring so we can present a range of quality ales and ciders that will tempt and excite you.


Our Festival food is hugely popular. Friday nights with top quality burgers and sausages from Keating’s the well-known local Wimborne butchers. Then on Saturdays with a double Hog Roast from Jackie and Anthony, farmers from Somerset.

If meat is not your thing then dip in to Trisha’s Veggie Chilli and Baked Potatoes or mix and match the choice is yours!

So forget the hamper it is all here, home cooked and fresh!

Please note this is a non smoking venue.
